Location and Directions


Me and my son are here literally right now. Staff is really nice. They are definitely not the problem... but the temperature has Ben an issue since I came here for the delivery of my son.. I was freezing shaking while pushing him out... and then on the mother baby side where we recover until we are discharged the room is not better either... its so cold i feel horrible everytime i have to change him. I'm sitting here covered in three blankets right now freezing... apparently something with the main heater is wrong... it's absolutely miserable in here... (4 months ago)

So my sisters girlfriend is in the hospital at HUH and they’re service is terrible. Every time she needs a new IV bag they take 20 minuets to change 1 bag. At one point they keep saying that her CPK levels went up, and then they said that they’re going down, then they say the don’t know. Some of the people that keep telling her that are students. Sometimes i feel like that they’re only trying to “help” her is for an experiment. They don’t know what’s going, they say that when her CPK levels go down to a certain amount she can leave. She’s been here since Tuesday and and they say she can leave Friday, now they’re saying they don’t know about her CPK, and they don’t know when she can leave. some staffs are unprofessional, they can’t even keep up with an IV bag, some of them can’t even speak proper English no offense, i wouldn’t reccomend this to anyone in need of help (a month ago)

Go to GWU hospital. You will get better and faster service. There is a reason Ronald Regan went to GWU and not Howard. Do not come to this hospital. I came here in a lot of with a broken bone and they made me gobble around on my broken foot. The security guard made me park on the other side of the lot. Because “it is the policy.” I was in an incredible amount of pain. The nurse complained when I did sit in the lobby and asked for a wheelchair. I waited in the hallway for about an hour to get an X-ray. I had to wait four hours to see a doctor. The doctor was some kid in his residency and misdiagnosed my injury. He told me to eat more meat. How the heck is going to help me heal my bone? As a doctor I figured he would recommend more plant based amino acids. I went to a second doctor and got the correct diagnosis at GWU hospital. I went in for an MRI at Howard Hospital. The staff was rude, unorganized. More interested in joking around with their friends then taking my MRI. I asked when will I get my results. They said it will go to your doctor. I said, which doctor and they yelled at me “YOUR DOCTOR.” I said, Who? They said “your doctor bye!” I hate this hospital and vow not to return. Waste of time and a waste of money. (3 months ago)

This hospital is the worse I came 15mins late after they told me i had a grace period to be a little late. then when I arrived they told me I couldn’t be seen because I was 25mins late instead of 15mins so that I had to reschedule. Mind you I’ve waited a whole month just to get this appointment then they told me I can come back in 2/2 weeks for another appointment. This is my very first pregnancy and they haven’t did anything to assure that my baby was healthy and okay!! They later told me I had to bring in my referral that was given to me to go to Howard hospital after I asked over the phone did I have to bring in any information the lady at the front desk said just a medical card and ID. I then told her I didn’t have my id so she said it was fine. Moral of the story they are unprofessional asf and they don’t work with u in no way shape or form. This hospital is so low I wouldn’t even send a roach there. The smell is horrible!!! I Hate this hospital...... (2 months ago)

I had an appointment at 12:30 and have been waiting over two hours and am still waiting. Why even have appointments at this point??? (a week ago)
